Holocaust Teachings in American Schools

I have a character born in 1939 to German parents. They move to the USA after the war, and don't tell their son the circumstances surrounding their move.

I want him to learn about the Holocaust in high school, which he would attend in the mid to late fifties. My question is, was the Holocaust/World War II being taught in high schools at that time, and if so, any details about the angle taken by teachers, and information given to students, would be very much appreciated!

Thankyou so much :)
